THE GREAT ORION NEBULA

THIS AMAZING IMAGE SHOWS THE COMPOSITE OF THE VARIOUS GASES IN THIS COMPLEX
SINCE IT IS IMAGED WITH NARROWBAND - EACH COLOR REPRESENTS A DIFFERENT GAS
RED=OXYGEN 3
GREEN=HYDROGEN ALPHA
BLUE=SULFUR 2

IMAGED WITH CANON 400MM F2.8 LENS 40MIN FOR EACH FILTER
MEADE DSI PRO 3 CAMERA
STACKED WITH SHORT EXPOSURES TO COMPOSE A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE IMAGE
(TO AVOID SATURATING THE BRIGHT CENTER)
IMAGED FROM MY HOME IN GAN YAVNE ISRAEL
